In memory of Mrs Audrey Kelso

A heartfelt thank you to the family for bringing our charity forward for donations in memory of Mrs Audrey Kelso, wife of the late Ray Kelso, one of the founders of Sailing for the Disabled.

After 37 years the charity is still going strong and we are very much aware that without Mr and Mrs Kelso the charity might not have existed.  The wonderful story of how it all started is still at the first paragraph of our member’s handbook so it will not be forgotten.

We would like to thank all that made a donation to support our charity.

Disability Awareness Training

After a wet start to the day, (which thankfully was in the classroom), we spent the afternoon in a very sunny and hot Douglas marina on and around the boat. The new(ish) members got to see and practice with the equipment we may use to help our sailors if they require support.
Thank you to our newbies who have joined the charity and are willing to give their time. Thank you to ARC Learning who provide our DAT and make it fun. And thank you to our Yacht manager Bobby Moore who gave his afternoon to help, demonstrate and pass on tips!

A sad loss of a promissing sailor

It is with great sadness that we learnt of the unexpected loss of Cody Atzori.

Those who had the priviledge of meeting Cody on one of his sails with SftD will acknowledge what a promissing sailor he was. Enthusiastic, maybe not in words but certainly in his deeds. Open for all challenges en willing to learn. He will be sorely missed.

We would like to pass on our deepest sympathies to his parents Paolo en Liz and his brothers Hebe, Giacomo and Teo.
